2019 CR WEEK: Thanks for your contribution

  Last July, for the 9th edition of the CR Week, 32,000 AXA colleagues gave 92,000 hours of volunteering (figures as of August 2nd). Discover HERE the Facebook album.     The CR Week is one of the ways to commit as citizens. Employees of AXA entities around the world are involved to give their time and skills to serving others alongside AXA Hearts in Action and local associations.    This annual event is fully relevant with our strategy on Corporate Responsibility. Today, we are fostering 3 strategic priorities 1/ Environment & climate change : AXA was one of the first to divest from coal and now we have to reinvent the next phase and see how we can help companies to finance the energy transition which is so important. 2/ Health and disease prevention: In line with our business ambition, to become a trusted health partner and help people to live a better life. We want notably to develop prevention with a priority of public health around tobacco and go further to align all our initiatives to have a bigger impact.3/ Social inequality and inclusion: As a responsible company, we are currently taking actions to respond to this situation that is threatening our social cohesion.   All the activities organized during the CR Week are totally aligned with our CR strategic priorities (many examples across the world are quoted in the video). There is a huge variety of activities which reflects the local diversity. Participating to this kind of event takes more than only individual commitment, it is above all a fantastic collective experience.     And stay tuned to get informed about the global key figures and the wrap-up video.
